  • Description


    We do have an already 30 years old foodforest. Our total land contains 3 ha, forest garden, Walnut-Agroforest, meadow, orchards, forest and a forest garden with Chinampas. We are working on a Syntropic Agroforestry. The hole farm is runned as an non-profit organisation, we do not get any support from government either from European community.

    We are having WWooFers the last 10 year and Workawayers the last 2 years.

    We do take you from Sunday late afternoon to Friday evening / Saturday morning. We will find work for anyone skills!

    Apply only if you are serious willing to help, not just to see the place and hang up here! We do have a lot of request, you should not block the place for someone who might be really interested! Please accept that we also need our privacy.

    We are one of the most famous Permaculture Farms in Austria. We do have one of the oldest and well established edible forest gardens under European conditions, In 2019 we started also a Syntropic Agroforestry for cool Climate! you can get experienced in community living. In Wels you can still feel the heritage of the Roman kingdom. If the weather is fine we are sitting outside on the bonfire.

    We do have work for anyone’s skills, but we are not able to give everyone a training! We do expect common sense. Usually we are cooking together, this is community time not working time. Volunteers have also to keep their area clean during their spear time. Our work is seasonal, like fruit picking from June to September. Gardening, weeding and mulching is also on our timetable. There is also always some woodwork to do. We would need an architect witch will plan with us the new eco building.
